I received an award

Wow – thanks Piedmont Writer. I am not really sure what to do with such an award because I am – as you said – a freshman here.

But thanks for the

award. And now I need to pass it on to someone else.

I will give this lovely “Bloom of an Idea Award” to Perri – because she is not only a writer – but is also a farmer and a mom and wow – she impresses me all the time.

And do I have to say some things about myself or is that just for certain awards?

Well – IDK – but I haven’t done an about me – so I’ll say seven things anyway – even if it is against award protocol.

1)I am a high school English teacher and have my summer off. I love teaching Hamlet, the Iliad, and All American Literature. My students are Juniors – aged 16-17. Oh what a job.

2) I am named after a wood sprite in Shakespeare’s the Tempest (not that little mermaid)

3) I have three cats (Pedro, Lydia, and Simone) and 8 chickens (Helen, Clementine, Red, Agatha, Martha, and Gertrude [the 3 witches], and Elenore and Ophelia.

4) I love water – because I am a Cancer (but on the cusp of Gemini)

5) I am 33 and 5′ 0″ tall (on a good day)

6) I have only one sibling – a sister who is twelve years older than me

7) I grew up on a lake and when I was 14 my dad gave me a canoe and it was my trasportation for a long time.I have many fond memories of meeting my friends at the town beach and spending days island hopping and swimming

Thanks again Piedmont Writer – and maybe someday I will have more than 50 followers – but I have to admit – I am not as dedicated a blogger as many. I really just want to share my writing thoughts – because my husband can only listen to so much. I read them much more than I write them. I love reading everyone’s posts very much.

  1. Well, I'm glad you like it. Everyone needs an award, and don't worry about hitting 50. Somedays when I look at how many I have I want to go back to under 20. And of course you weren't named for the mermaid. She was born after you.

  2. Hello Ariel! I came over from Piedmont Writer's blog. I must admit I thought of The Tempest first with your name, not The Little Mermaid, you'll be pleased to know. :)It sounds amazing to grow up by a lake and have your own canoe – wow. So different to where I grew up in a city!
